3.68/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into tulip 11/13/12 from notes

A brownish amber, quite dark for the style, large well retained tan head that ends up as an eraser top island leaving a few thick rings and some chunks of lace

S herbal tea and Vitamin C chewable's mix with caramel and spruce with some citrus rind, I also pick up on some yeast I think I can pick Proef yeast out of a line-up after all the Mikkellers I've had from this brewery

T has a woody earthy going on I didn't quite find on the nose, more rind and less chewable tablets that for one reason or another I kinda like, I think I prefer the nose

M has a bitter bite and leaves a little grit behind, slightly creamy from the bubbles and a herbal rind finish lingers for a while, no complaints in this department

O much like most of the single hops from this series its missing just a little something, good beer but not the best I've had

I like single hopped brews because it gives me the chance to explore the hops on their own. Not by any means the best IPA's out there but I'm always excited when another one comes my way.

330mL bottle

I never mention bitterness in my reviews, my bitterness taste buds are ridiculously under-sensitive.

APPEARANCE : Orange mahogany with a hint of a reddish hue. Generous head that falls down at an average speed, leaving a healthy dose of not-so-tough looking lacing. Doesn't disappear completely, settles into a thin layer on top of the beer. Pretty much what I expected from an American IPA.

SMELL : First nose is hops and malts, with the malt having the upper hand by a hair's breadth. There's something that reminds me of banana cake and spices. Barely any booze. Second nose made my eyebrows rise : herbs kind of came out of nowhere. Something almost like (???) vegetable broth? Probably from the nugget. Definite smell of cocoa/mocha. I'd be curious to know what malts they used. Third nose brings out the herbs even more, and some nutmeg can clearly be smelled. Still barely any booze.

TASTE : Lots of herbs as can be expected from the nugget hops. Also some candied orange. The malt is well balanced and supports the hops very nicely.

MOUTHFEEL : Just round enough for what this beer is trying to be. Nice length.

OVERALL : A very good beer worthy of Mikkeller, but not their best. I understand that they weren't trying to make the best beer out there but simply to provide beer-enthusiasts out there with a series of single-hop IPAs that were made the exact same way, except for the hop varieties. Just for this, I'll raise this beer's score to account for the whole series and what it accomplishes.
